In line with the world’s fastest growing food trend for seasonal fresh produce the inaugural Yarra Valley Regional Farmers Market was held in March 1998. The concept has been an outstanding success for regional producers, for local consumers and for visitors, many of whom come to the Yarra Valley specifically to check out the region’s growing reputation for exceptional and exciting food and wine.
Held at the Punt Road Winery on the third Sunday of each month, the market is a lively place with food tastings, lots of chatter, tantalising aromas and a visual feast of foods, flowers and flavors.
In addition to an extensive selection of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables you will find among the stalls mouth-watering biscuits, fresh-ground coffee and beans, unusual jams, preserves and sauces, honey, delectable chocolates, fruit vinegars, locally baked bread, free-range eggs, biscuits, herbs, spices, fresh local meats and, as they say … much, much more! Today it is Victoria’s longest running monthly market which gives you the chance to buy direct from the grower, producer or maker, and, importantly, that it doesn’t have “food miles” on it – that it wasn’t made 10 weeks ago and that it hasn’t come thousands of miles across the ocean.
Discover delicious surprises, goodies and gifts for all your family and friends under the one roof. Join in the fun of a traditional market held all year round in the grounds of Punt Road winery, St Huberts Road, Coldstream from 9am to 1.30pm. For more information Phone: (03) 9739 0122.
